Elevate Sales Conference

The Elevate Sales Conference by Clemson's Sales Innovation Program offers a unique opportunity for sales students, professionals, and alumni to engage in a discussion of ideas and trends occurring across the sales profession. Conference attendees can expect to network and learn from a variety of distinguished industry leaders and academic experts. Our dynamic and accomplished speakers will share a variety of novel ideas based on their experiences and research, all in an engaging and action-oriented format. As a result, all attendees will come away with actionable guidance for their sales organization or selling activity. It is our sincere mission for the Elevate Sales Conference to help advance the sales profession, promote a sales community, and develop tomorrow's sales leaders.

Importantly, Elevate is also designed to give our Sales Innovation Program students an opportunity to implement selling skills gained in their coursework. In order to attain their sales certification, students sell tickets to Elevate as part of their Sales Certificate Capstone Class. This class simulates a real-world selling experience by allowing students to execute their sales process during interactions with potential customers. Students will apply classroom knowledge to prospect, conduct outreach and set meetings with potential customers with the goal of gaining a commitment to buying a ticket(s) to the event. To help simulate an actual selling environment, students are held responsible for metrics tied to leading sales indicators (i.e., sales behaviors) and sales quotas. As we also hope to elevate our community, a portion of the proceeds benefits Clemson Community Care, a local food bank and social services charity.
